Have you heard Jake Owen’s latest song called “8 Second Ride?”
Here’s an excerpt . . .
“. . .I ain’t never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this
high”. . .
. . . which pretty much describes my son Nate’s F-350 since he installed a lift kit and even bigger tires and wheels on it a couple of weekends ago! (Please note for perspective: Nate is 6’5″ tall, so his truck is HUGE!)
It was a ton of work, which he did all by himself . . .
. . . which I attribute to the years he spent building elaborate, $100-something Lego kits, with millions of pieces, and instruction books 3-inches thick! (He has a lot more patience than me!)
The result? His truck is MUCH bigger than his brother’s . . .
In fact, I can stand next to Nate’s truck and have full head clearance UNDERNEATH his side-view mirror!
Oh, and stepping out of it can be hazardous to your health. . . that is, if you forget you’re two-stories high and have heels on! We won’t even talk about hoisting yourself up that high!
Nate—I’m SO proud of you!
Here’s the rest of that song . . .
“Well, hey girl what’s your name?
Haven’t I seen you before?
I recognized them dark green eyes when you dosie doe’d across the floor
Are you alone or are you with someone?
She said a matter of fact I’m not
So i took her hand that’s when it all began and we headed towards the parking lot .
And she said hey boy, do you mind takin’ me home tonite?
‘cuz I ain’t never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this
high. . . it’s gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride. . .”
Hmm. . . I’m thinking Nate may have had an ulterior motive for lifting that truck . . .
Any country girls out there?
